buddy gets deer always, with bow,

but only half the time with 12 ga slugs. This has been true for almost 40 years now. I asked him why this is so, and he smiled and said "well, where I bowhunt, you aint really supposed to be hunting". He poaches a deer a year on a game preserve. He buried a salt block where he could use his climbing stand on 2 trees (depending upon wind). Then he baited it with sweet corn, apples, carrots, until he saw sign that the deer were using the salt lick. Stop the baiting until the week before bow season. Then, at 4 am, with full camo, musk, etc, he climbs a tree with his folding blind. He's got a little red-lensed light on eyeglass frames. So he can read a paperback until dawn. He claims that every time he's peeked over the top of the blind, there's been a deer feeding on the bait. He has not always been successful at getting off a shot, but he HAS always filled his bow tag.

Survival poaching has nothing to do with sport hunting. Dip****s can't seem to figure that out, as they can't figure out much of anything else. Even easier than this, if shtf, is put up some snares in this area, horizontal, 7 ft in the air, with an apple hanging on a wire, centered about a foot above the snare loop. Deer raise up on their hind legs to get apples, etc, all the time. you can obviously have several such salt lick snares, spread out in a clover leaf pattern, so that you get back to 'base' 2x per day, after walking 2 hours in any of 3 directions. 12 mile diameter circle covers the 'home range' of a LOT of deer, in much of the US. If shtf, concerns about "humane killing" as well as laws, go right out the window. You've got to jerk many hundreds of lbs of meat, one way or another. This is a way to do exactly that.

horrific as it would be, "meatballs" can contain a big treble hook. cabled to a drag log, such hooks will catch a lot of dogs, if shtf. There are ways to set up very high probability of having lots of game (and edible plants, too) in a given area. just takes a bit of time and knowledge and nobody but you will ever notice that such "preps" have been made.
